GMT 03:14:07, Tuesday, January 19, 2038 ?????? Is it True February 9, 2006

From T.THAVA VENKAT KUMAR by email

Year 2038..Again the replica of Y2K*
Note: This is just for FYI only, Please Don’t try this. This is true and if you do this then your network based applications will not work. The Year 2038 Problem Triaging steps…    

  1. login to yahoo messenger
  2. send instant message to anyone – fine its working…
  3. now, change your system date to 19-Jan-2038, 03:14:07 AM or above
  4. Confirm weather your date is changed
  5. again send instant message to anyone…

Your YM crashes….

* * * YES ALL NETWORK BASED APPLICATION WILL NOT WORK NOW * * *

*Why….. What is it?*

Starting at GMT 03:14:07, Tuesday, January 19, 2038, It is expected to see lots  of systems around   the world breaking magnificently: satellites falling out of orbit, massive power outages (like the 2003 North American black out), hospital life support system
failures, phone system interruptions, banking errors, etc. One second after this critical second, many of these systems will have wildly inaccurate date settings, producing all kinds of unpredictable consequences. In short, many of the dire predictions for the year 2000 are much more likely to actually occur in the year 2038! Consider the year 2000 just a dry run. In case you think we can sit on this issue for another 30 years before addressing it, consider that reports of temporal echoes of the 2038 problem are already starting to appear in future date calculations for mortgages and vital statistics!

In the first month of the year 2038 C.E. many computers will encounter a date-related bug in   their operating systems and/or in the applications they run. This can result in incorrect and wildly inaccurate dates being reported by the operating system and/or
applications. The effect of this bug is hard to predict, because many applications are not prepared for the resulting “skip” in reported time anywhere from 1901 to a “broken record” repeat of the reported time at the second the bug occurs. Also, may make
some small adjustment to the actual time the bug expresses itself. This bug to cause serious problems on many platforms, especially Unix and Unix-like platforms, because these systems will “run out of time”.

What causes it?

Time_t is a data type used by C and C++ programs to represent dates and times internally. (Windows programmers out there might also recognize it as the
basis for the CTime and CTimeSpan classes in   MFC.) time_t is actually just an integer, a whole number, that counts the number of seconds since January 1, 1970 at 12:00 AM Greenwich Mean Time. A time_t value of 0 would be 12:00:00 AM (exactly midnight)
1-Jan-1970, a time_t value of 1 would be 12:00:01 AM (one second after midnig ht) 1-Jan-1970, etc.. some example times and their exact time_t representations:

Date & time time_t representation

1-Jan-1970, 12:00:00 AM GMT 0
1-Jan-1970, 12:01:00 AM GMT 60
1-Jan-1970, 01:00:00 AM GMT 3 600
2-Jan-1970, 12:00:00 AM GMT 86 400
1-Jan-1971, 12:00:00 AM GMT 31 536 000
1-Jan-1972, 12:00:00 AM GMT 63 072 000
1-Jan-2038, 12:00:00 AM GMT 2 145 916 800
19-Jan-2038, 03:14:07 AM GMT 2 147 483 647

By the year 2038, the time_t representation for the current time will be over 2 140 000 000. And that’s the problem. A modern   32-bit computer stores a “signed integer” data type, such as time_t, in 32 bits. The first of these bits is used for the positive/negative
sign of the integer, while the remaining 31 bits are used to store the number itself.

The highest number these 31 data bits can store works out to exactly 2 147 483 647. A time_t value of this exact number, 2 147 483 647, represents Janu ary 19, 2038, at 7 seconds past 3:14 AM Greenwich Mean Time. So, at 3:14:07 AM GMT on that fateful day, every time_t used in a 32-bit C or C++ program will reach its upper limit.

One second later, on 19-January-2038 at 3:14:08 AM GMT, disaster strikes. When a signed integer reaches its maximum value and then gets incremented, it wraps
around to its lowest possible negative value. This means a 32-bit signed integer, such as a time_t, set to its maximum value of 2 147 483 647 and   then incremented by 1, will become -2 147 483 648. Note that “-“ sign at the beginning of this large number. A
time_t value of -2 147 483 648 would represent December 13, 1901 at 8:45:52 PM GMT.

So, if all goes normally, 19-January-2038 will suddenly become 13-December-1901 in every time_t across the globe, and every date calculation based on this figure will go haywire. And it gets worse. Most of the support functions that use t he time_t data type
cannot handle negative time_t values at all. They simply fail and return an error code.

This is supposed to be the first big festival after Lohri in North India. Today we offer prayer to the Goddess ‘Saraswati’ who is the Goddess of wisdom and knowledge. I remember my childhood days when I was in my villege and we (my childhood friends) had organised the pooja in our school. We used to collect contribution from friends, relatives as well as different houses in the villege to purchage the Idol and prasad. We start prepration around a week before the day. One day before the ‘pooja’ we had to bring the Idol to our place, usually the primary school of my villege where I was till Std. V. The whole night we used to spend in the school, preparing for the next day; all kind of decoration, preparing prasads we had to complete. I left the villege when I was 11; my dad got transferred to Chandigarh and I moved there with him.

After that I was never the part of such type of celebration till today at AIM. Here at AIM, there was not really much to do; lots of people to help; no need to ask for any contribution; propbably college be providing the money.

Now, At our place people establish many Idols at various places of the city. For that they collect money from the residents, businessmen, shop-keepers… Its not this particular festival but there are a lot… Say it be Durga Pooja, Ganesh Chaturthi.. there are many more… Is it necessary? Its my personal experience, for common man it creates trouble.

Once I was travelling from my villege to Patna by bus, in the way I had to stop many a times; just because large number of people were stopping the traffic to ask for ‘Chanda’ as we call it. They will move to houses; I have seen abusing people on denying. Most of the money collected is mis-used, you know…. Its have taken really a ugly form in my state as well as most parts of north India.

I am not talking about the Historcial Hero from Maharastra here but its the name of a Telugu movie which I watched today morning at Roxy Theatre Esplanade, with my senior Mr. M Anil Kumar and one of my super senior Bhanu Sir, from AIM, both belong to Andhra Pradesh. The actors whom I recognised were Prabash and Shreya. I have seen Prabash in Versham, his latest movie. I have seen Shreya also in other telugu movie but dont remember the names; she is a superstar in south, people have watched him in Jagjit Singh Video (Kahin door jab din dhal jayee…) also.

The movie (its was released 3-4, am not sure, years back but it was showcased today for one show here in Kolkata) is basically a action/thrillar; story based in the port of Vizag (Vishakhapattanam). A lady is leaving in Sri Lanka with her son and step son. Her son doesn’t like his step brother. Somehow they are forced with their community to leave from Sri Lanka and land to Vizag but they the step son got missing and the mother assumes that he is ded. The rest of the movie goes finding the mother and their reunion. This seems a typical old hindi movie story but its not like that. The hatrate of younger brother to his step brother (Later he proved to be Prabash) brings some turn in the story. Prabash can fight well with Sharks, can be comfertable underwater for several minutes, can kick a heavy guy several feet. Action scenes are just watchable; I must say they satisfy me while Hindi movies even most of the time Hollywood movies also leaves me in between. Shreya and Prabash meet in the Vizag DC office (where she is employed, it seems, from where she comes and where she goes after office; its upon your imagination) where Prabash goes in search of informaton about his lost mother.

I have been watching Telugu movies quit from long time, when I was in Hyderabad. I like their music (their orchestra is best, better than Bollywood), choreography and sets are very nice. Of course most of the Female lead Actors are from north India itself but native actresses are excellent. We can’t just ignore and term the Telugu movies as just another regional langauage movies because qualitywise they are qual to or may be better than Hindi movies. Of course they also produce ‘B’ grade movies where quality may be down; but compare with the movies made in other regional languages like in UP, Bihar, Chattisgarh, West Benal,… I can’t say about Punjabi movies because last time I saw a Punjabi movie, around 10 years ago when I was in school in Chandigarh. That time I didn’t found equivalent quality in them as Bollywood; now they may have improved themselves.

The Telugu movies do really good business. In the city Hyderabad itself there are around 200 cinema halls. People watch the movie in theatre; piracy, I didn’t found. VCDs are released offially much later. The reason is not the administration but the attitute of people who themselves deny for pirated CDs and prefer to whatch it out. And why not if they have luxury Multiplexes like PRASAD IMAX in the city. (only third of its kind in India).

A carrot, an egg and a cup of coffee…. January 27, 2006

Posted by Narendra in My College AIM.

A carrot, an egg and a cup of coffee… You will never look at a cup of
coffee the same way again.

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how
things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make
it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It
seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and
placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil.In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil, without saying a word.

In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and laced them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her daughter, she asked, “Tell me, what do you see?” “Carrots, eggs, and coffee,” she replied. Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it.

After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg. Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. The aughter then asked, “What does it mean, mother?” Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity: boiling water. Each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became
hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the
boiling water, they had changed the water. “Which are you?” she asked her daughter. “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?”

Think of this: Which am I?

Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength? Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?

Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate yourself to another level? How do you handle adversity?

Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?
